    I have. Like most recently when DD1 kept calling me to her every 3 minutes in the middle of the night, it was freezing cold and I was so, so tired. After the 25th time (literally) I just lost it and shouted at her to go to sleep and stop messing around.

    I find it is a really ineffective way to discipline. However,I will admit to losing my cool a few times!!

    I don't think I yelled at DD when she was young as yours is OP.

    I yell at her now though, she's almost 7, but not all that often. It's normally a raised voice rather than yelling. I yell when I get really angry. I have no problem in my daughter seeing me lose my temper - it's what people do when you make them angry over and over again.

    I'm not sure yelling long lines at a 17 month old is going to help much though... perhaps more of an "OW! THAT HURT!" is better if anything... she's not going to understand your rants otherwise.

    At my 4 and a half year old I do sometimes. I don't like to. But sometimes I lose my cool. I feel super mean when I do it.
    At my toddler, no never.

    I don't just yell, I roar! And I hate it. Something i'm working on (and getting better), it's a hard habit to break coz thr kids almost think you're not serious til you yell when you've done it for so long. I don't really yell at my youngest (2.5 yrs old), and didn't when my oldest two were that young either, I can't remember what age it started, maybe 4-5 ish? I definitely think it can be as bad/worse than smacking.

    Yeah, I do and I hate it. I know it doesn't work and it is horrid. Arggh.

    I never ever even raised my voice when I had one child.

    For my child, yelling is far worse than smacking. Very much so. I also can't imagine what a 17mo baby would think of yelling.

    When I have reached the brink of my patience I admit I do... But I really try not too.

    No.. my baby is 16 months and I think yelling would terrify her. If she bites me (whilst bf) I just speak firmly and that's enough to have her burst into tears sometimes!

    My DH on the other hand... he's been yelled at a few times.
